Wunder is powering the renewable energy revolution and I'm grateful to tackle challenging problems with some of the most brilliant minds I've met to date. There is a focus on efficiency, innovation and autonomy at Wunder and the culture is top notch.
Wunder is rapidly growing which comes with growing pains but Leadership is taking a proactive approach to maintain a growing culture.

- The values Wunder professes regularly show up at work. - Wunder really cares about employees from the top down. I have always gotten the sense that leadership has thought deeply about how to have highly motivated, competent and effective people. The solution seems to be, treat people with respect, trust employees to manage their own work, pay people above industry average for their job, regularly give feedback, and encourage everyone to continuously improve at their job. - Engineers are given a lot of responsibility to manage their own work and solve problems. "Driver drives" is a value that the team regularly uses in our day to day engineering work. - The product and engineering team is great. Filled with talented and kind people who are awesome to work with. The rest of the team is also awesome to work with. - Every success at Wunder means more solar panels on more rooftops
- It can be a bit intimidating starting work at Wunder. There is a lot of domain complexity and many new concepts will be thrown at you right away. - Some of the regular issues with start-ups, things move fast, priorities sometimes will change from week to week. - From an engineering perspective, if you just want to pull tickets and do exactly whats on the card, Wunder might not be the best fit. - The team is pretty small and lacks substantial diversity (although I feel confident this will change in the next year).

Work life balance is great, you’re able to go to a doctors appointment, pick your children up from child care, attend a family event, etc. and have no repercussion as long as you’re vocal to your manager and let them know what your availability will be like. Also, most people are incredibly smart and have a solution to most problems. If not, you’re given lots of opportunities to figure them out as a team.
While there appears to be an inclusive environment, it’s quite cliquey. The people that have been there for years stick together and those that haven’t are welcomed incrementally. If you’re new, you have to assimilate with the culture immediately and hope you Make a good impression. They had someone in HR working there, that was a black woman that was pretty amazing at bringing people together and making them feel included. They were let go for reasons undetermined. Ultimately, they were replaced by a white male. The company has great work life balance and is trying to be innovative within their niche, but seems like their diverse community is ingenious and not a priority. There are statements of having employee resource groups available, but that is not really apparent unless there are all white-cis women involved. I wish there were more ways I could get involved and make the work environment more inclusive.Continue reading
